Happy Mothers Day

She is the face you first saw
and knew your life with her would be infinite.
She is the tired eyes that helped
you finish that project
that paper
helped make that decision you could not.
She is the one who held your hand
when you cried,
because you fell or had
a bad dream.
She is the one who held your hand
when you cried,
because that boy broke your heart
or that girl lied to you
or that spot on the sports team got filled,
but not by you.
She is the sweetest flower
that never dies,
she is the full moon on a perfect night.
She is the voice on the other end of the receiver
that you always want to hear.
Her words are bandaids
and nurses
and therapists.
Her words are teachers
and friends
and knowledge you do not posses.
She is the one who gave you life
and taught you how to live.
So thank her today,
thank her always.
